Best hotel in area. All rooms are beachfront. There is an a.amazing pool. The best beach for surfing is in front. The food in the restaurant is excellent. The staff is absolutely the most helpfull staff I have ever encountered anywhere. The owners live nearby and are immaculate with every detail. The owner is very concerned about the guests. They will go out of their way to make sure that you are having a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Almendra room.

This is our second time staying at this place.
It is very private and perfect for a getaway.
Rooms are clean and cozy. Everything you need is in the room.
Walk out to the beach, swim in a private pool, watch the surfers... just relaxing. One of my favorite places

The staff was great and the hotel was perfect. The property feels very private, although it is in a very central location. There is also a restaurant on site with great bartenders and a nice seating area to enjoy the ocean. We will certainly return.

I knew I would like El Sitio after visiting the web site and making the reservation, but my wife wasn't sure....until we arrived and saw the beach, and our room, the Almendra Suite. Then she fell in love with the place. Very nice beach style room with A/C, great bed, nice bathroom, but the huge terrace overlooking the pool, beach, and amazing Venao waves made it. You could live on that terrace and never get tired of the view or the sound of the incessant waves. And just overall El Sitio is great, casual, relaxing, super nice staff, and a well-run operation. The restaurant is excellent, and the bar is one of those perfect beach bars you dream of when you go on vacation. Special thanks to Alessandra, a lively, always smiling, bartender who mixes a mean cocktail, and who also works in reception. A pleasure to see that sort of dedicated staff member. And if you love surfing, which most people who visit Venao do, then the hotel has a great surf shop; boards and boogies for sale or rent, and a very nice selection of beach clothing. Want a surf lesson, just sign up.

Room Tip: If the Almendra Suite or one of the other suites with large terraces are available, book it

We came to El-sitio witrhout knowing where we are going to. We only looked for a place to stay while surfing in Playa Venau.
El-sitio became the highlight of our vacation. We stayed in El-Sitio 8 full days.
The rooms are beutiful - we stayed in 3 different types of rooms 2 of them located at the ground level and one is located in the second floor . The food - great . The staff - very nice friendly and helpfull.
As I look back at the all the surfing vacationsI have made - I would definately say that in the overall experience - playa venau is the best surf vacation I had. A big part of that feel comes from my stay in El-Sitio.

Room Tip: Would recommend 2nd floor rooms facing the ocean
